    $32,500 - located in San Diego, CA.

    Up for sale is my 2013 Mini GP (also called "GP 2") with only 6,600 miles. It has a clean title and no bank liens. It is in as close to "showroom" condition as a lightly-used car can be - no mechanical or cosmetic issues worth mentioning.

    The only change from "stock" setup is the tires - standard run-flat tires exchanged for Granada Touring HP (215/40-R17) performance tires.

    At time of purchase, MSRP was set at $39,950 plus dealer markup.

    This Mini is unit # 84 of 500 units made for the US market - a rare collector's item. Mini calls it "the fastest production Mini ever built". Some of the highlights of this Mini compared to "regular" or "JCW" Minis:

    * Wholly redesigned suspension with coil-overs offering a 0.8-inch range of adjustment
    * Lowered by 0.8 inch in the front and 0.6 inch at the rear
    * Spring rates have increased by 50 percent with anti-roll bar diameters remaining the same
    * Front brake hardware includes larger, 13-inch vented front discs and six-piston fixed calipers
    * A rear wing, diffuser, and underbody panels reduce lift at the rear axle by 90 percent at speeds above 62 mph
    * 7.5- by 17-inch aluminum wheels GP style
    * With two degrees of negative camber and reduced toe-in, the GP is set up to make good use of its rubber
    * 211 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque
    * Recaro seats with red GP stitching
    * Rear seats removed in favor of a rear strut reinforcement brace to minimize weight and body sway

    The styling is very appealing (in my opinion and others' opinions) - contrasting gray and black with red accents/graphics and graphite rear wing.

    The "speed claims" are real - read about the 8:23 time set at the famous German race course (Nurburgring) - not far from times set by hyper-expensive supercars!

    Here is your chance to own (and drive) this fun toy - and collector's item!
